    Howdy, Julie from Iowa! Haven't seen you around in a while. Good to see you back!

    Beware - there are a lot of new members. Only a few are weird even by our standards, but all the posts...don't fall behind!

    Hey!

    Who you calling weird? I thought that we new people were the ones who were meant to be shocked on a regular basis by the insanity we see around us. I'm still struggling to come to terms with all the references to p-banging over on the getting to know each other thread. What is that all about?

    I'm just jealous. I have two in spike, that have been that way for months...they're just messing with me!

    A little benign neglect often triggers plants to bloom. I'm glad yours took the hint!

    Here is what you do:

    Bring the orchid into your bedroom.
    Take out your suitcase.
    Pack the suitcase.
    Tell the orchid you will see them when you get home.
    Put it where you will not see it for a week or more.

    Waa Laa, instant orchid bloom stimulation!

    You are welcome, glad I could help.

    See, Kerry...you fell for the oldest trick in the book!

    I know someone is weird around here, but I'm not quite sure who... All I need is to suggest my suspicion and BINGO! there you go and confirm it.

    Now Steven, on the other hand, doesn't need to be tricked into confirming it...

    Why thank you McSneaky! Mr Kerry certainly doesn't have any trouble thinking I am weird, so maybe you are right. I am wondering if I am absolutely mental sitting at my computer before I have had breakfast and got dressed for work. this is taking dedication to the forum to a new level...

    Ummm, Steven? Did you by any chance mean to say 'Voila'? Not meaning to be a snotty linguist or anything, (it's certainly not like I can actually speak French) but sometimes I have trouble understanding American terms and stuff. Not that it makes me sound thick or anything....

    What are ya talkin' about? We are an innocent bunch! We were talking about pelvic-banging on the keyboard as part of piano theatrics/repertoire of some resputable performers/composer! teheheehee ...
